Shrike Arghast.3856 Posted September 6, 2022 Share Posted September 6, 2022 (edited) I like bards in fantasy lore (not really FFXIV's take, which is really more of a glorified archer, but rather the instrument-toting, buff-focused, sometimes-1h-sword-wielding support class). Obviously, GW2 doesn't have a true bard - which is totally fine. I'm not here to cry over it, but rather to brainstorm the closest I can come to playing one of these musicians with what the game has given me. I consider the criteria for what makes a bard a bard (in no particular order): Buffs. Some sort of musical theming. Can use traditional bard-like 1hs like daggers and swords. (Potentially) leather-ish armor. Given the above, I'm currently playing a 1h sword (and possibly eventually a dagger with spellbreaker)-using warrior with a warhorn. It seems to fulfill the basic criteria (particularly the use of an instrument), with the exception of heavy armor (which is largely overcome through outfits and wardrobe use). My question is: is this the nearest I can come? Does any prof/specialization better fit the notion of a bard?
